JOURNEY

    • Jan 25, 2018 – The most impactful thing that Museveni read is Matthew 7:7, “Knock and the door will be opened for you, seek and you will find, ask and you will receive.”
    • Dec 18, 2017 – Because Museveni grew up in an Adventist family he does not celebrate Christmas, but explained that traditionally in Rwanda people buy new outfits and go to church on Christmas. Museveni thinks the word his friends would describe him as is “responsible” because it means a lot to him to be responsible when it comes to his work and assignments.
    • Nov 11, 2017 – Museveni is thankful for the guidance God has given him, and that he is in his final year at college! He is also thankful for his family, and is looking forward to spending time with them this Christmas. Museveni enjoys Christmas
    • Oct 8, 2017 – Museveni spent his summer holidays at home helping his family, and is excited to be starting school because he feels like he has been gone for a long time.
    • May 25, 2017 – Something Museveni wishes more people knew about Rwanda is how caring the people are, and how much they love to welcome foreigners!
    • March 28, 2017 – When asked about the things he values most, Museveni said family, friends, education and self-discipline!
    • Feb 13, 2017 – “Something that makes me feel empowered is when someone gives or puts his trust on me, or when he shows me that can do something.” – Museveni
    • Jan 17, 2017 – Life isn’t without challenges. Last year, a challenge Museveni faced was a very busy course load. Through this, he learned that without a timetable in place, it would be hard to achieve his goals. Time management is a key to success!
    • Dec 8, 2016 – Big news! Museveni just placed in the top 10 at a competition for his plan to create a social enterprise called “Hope Center,” which will work with Burundian refugees in Rwanda!
    • Nov 20, 2016 – When asked about what he’s thankful for, Museveni said that God has given him good health this year, and that he’s achieved many of this years’ goals!
    • Oct 14, 2016 – Museveni had a great time during his summer internship! He says the software skills he learned will be so valuable for his future career!
    • June 30, 2016 – Museveni just finished his 2nd year at University! This summer he’s busy with a software internship, but in his free time he’s excited to read a book from our Leadership Library, “The Negotiating Game.”
    • April 20, 2016 – During the Aspen Heights team visit to Rwanda, Museveni said he learned a lot from the team’s leadership training. What stood out the most was how humble the team was about their successes.
    • March 11 2016 – When asked about his new goals for term, Museveni said he wants to study his hardest to score even higher marks than last term. With his work ethic, we believe he can achieve this!
    • Feb 1, 2016 – Museveni enjoys reading the Bible! His favorite verse is Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
    • Jan 21, 2016 – Museveni’s Community Impact Project is giving Leadership Classes to students in his community! Museveni will be using our Leadership Guides and curriculum from our trainings for his classes.
    • Dec 18, 2015 – What was Museveni’s happiest moment of the semester? When he realized These Numbers Have Faces is more than a program, but a family. We feel so honored to have Museveni as one of our scholars!
    • Nov 8, 2015 – How many languages does Museveni speak? 3! Kinyarwanda, French and English!

BIO

Museveni was born in Uganda and was only a few days old when his father passed away. A few years later Museveni went to live with his aunt in Rwanda. Living conditions in his village were difficult, but Museveni’s aunt worked hard to provide him with an education. Committed to his studies, Museveni was determined that one day he would go to University. Now that he’s a Civil Engineering student, Museveni’s vision is to bring infrastructure to Rwanda and East Africa that will help people rise out of poverty.
